Abstract

An A to Z of Postural Care was designed to help those who work with children with postural care needs. It has been written jointly by specialist teachers, therapists and parents of children with
physical impairments. The information provided is informed by research that explored the views of teachers and teaching assistants about their experiences of looking after children with physical impairments in mainstream primary schools in Kent. This A to Z booklet aims to give basic information and may act as a starting point for discussions with the therapy team, the child’s family and others in the school. It should link to more general awareness raising within a school of the importance of good posture for learning.

The A-Z can be used together with other POSTED training materials to provide the basis for a training programme for parents and teachers. When using/referring to this booklet please acknowledge authorship as appropriate. Details of the other POSTED training resources and publications can be found at CREATE http://create.canterbury.ac.uk/
